Scene of historic battle in 1746 - site of the last major pitched battle fought on British soil


The Battle of Culloden took place on April 16th 1746, and was the final clash between the French-supported Jacobites and the Hanoverian British Government in the 1745 Jacobite Rising.  It was the last battle to be fought on mainland Britain, and defeat for the Jacobites brought an end to their aim to restore the House of Stuart to the throne of the Kingdom of Great Britain.

After many turbulent years when the Moor itself was neglected, and has suffered from various desecrations over the years, including a road being built through the graves in 1835, and mass conifer planting. The National Trust for Scotland has worked tirelessly to clear much of the Moor back to its original state, enhancing the battlefield tour experience, and has now built a visitor centre providing visitors with a fascinating insight into the area, the history of the times, and battle itself.

Culloden Battlefield - site of the last major pitched battle fought on British soil. Here, on 16 April 1746 two armies clashed in a final confrontation over the thrones of Britain. In just one hour the army of the British government under Prince William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland crushed forever the Jacobite army under Prince Charles Edward Stuart.

This battlefield marks the site of the historic 1746 battle between the Duke of Cumberland and Prince Charles.

Visiting Culloden takes on a whole new meaning with the opening of an exciting new visitor centre and interactive exhibition. The battlefield itself is now restored to as close as possible that marched on by the two sides on that fateful day.The new centre and exhibition allows the whole Culloden story to be told in an innovative and interactive way which appeals to all the family.
